50 Months of Infertility

I know that today isn’t blog day, but my heart is a little heavy this morning. My body likes to play games with me.  My body likes to play cruel tricks on my mind. Every month, without fail, I get my hopes up and I think that Baby Horsley could be in the making. Just…

Another MRI for Mary

Saturday blog days. This is still so new and odd to me. I find myself stressing for Fridays, still, and I worry about scheduling appointments or making plans. I keep having to remind myself that I have another whole day and that I can take my time on Saturday to write, have coffee, and, enjoy…

MRIs and Valentine’s

Hello to all, I hope you had a great week. I know this post comes late, but since my IBD News Today column goes live on Fridays, I will be posting on Saturdays from here on out. After last Friday’s blog posts went live, both Early Signs and Symptoms of My Crohn’s Disease and Eggshell…

Eggshell Days

Friday night after my last blog post, It Could Be Worse, Philip and I went out to dinner for ‘date night’ at a restaurant nearby.  The restaurant itself was nice, but I was slightly let down because the food was highly overrated. While they boasted their fried chicken, they had overcooked ours, and it came…

It Could Be Worse

For this week, it is all about ‘it could be worse’.  This is my message.  My motto.  My catchword. We began the weekend with some insomnia Friday night, and we began Saturday with our new weekly movie date.  Philip and I went to see La La Land, a completely spectacular movie. If you haven’t, I…

More Doctors & Writing Opportunities

It has been a decent week with some good news, and, of course, I’ve had doctors appointments and mixed with Crohn’s issues. Saturday, Philip and I went on a movie date. Last week we saw Split, and we were left slightly disappointed.  Another movie with a character plot filled with sexual assault is not my…

Doctors, Family, Medications, & Photoshoots

If I thought last week was chaos, this week was just as busy. After my ER visit #5 and posting my blog on Friday, I had the worst insomnia. Usually, the excitement and intensity of those days wear me out, but I could not sleep for the life of me.  My insomnia continues to get…

Weekly Chaos & ER Visit #5

I have to say, this week has not been the best for me, but it has not been my worst. More than once this week I have questioned whether a trip to the ER was needed or if I should see my Primary Care doctor, but we will get to that. To start off the…

Remicade Infusion Day #3

I know I know, I missed a week of posting.  But shit happens.  No pun intended. I apologize for the hiatus. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I know that sounds disingenuous or insincere, but, trust me, I’m sure your holiday was better than mine, and I’ll…

‘Tis the Season…

Today being blog post Friday, I knew I couldn’t leave you guys this week without posting before the holiday festivities. So, I planned this one out and wrote a little each day, and I will try to be quick so you can get back to your long weekend and your parties.  ‘Tis the season for…

Time Wasted

Okay, so….Today’s blog post is coming to you late again this week. The tardiness is due to daily stressors, Crohn’s issues and some family drama. Go figure.  This week has been time wasted, with nothing but migraines, onesies, wrong appointments, you know, the usual. Friday after my infusion, I posted Remicade Day #2 right at…
